#KingSize drinks at the bar, all night long

Crucial cogs in the development of U.K. dance music, the Destouche brothers – Trevor, aka Flinty Badman, and David, aka Deman Rocker – became known as MCs as part of North London’s Unity sound system and began operating as the Ragga Twins in 1989.

Through 1992, they issued a pile of 12″ singles through the self-named label run by Shut Up & Dance along with the album „Reggae Owes Me Money” (1991).

These releases, containing tracks like „Illegal Gunshot,” „Spliffhead” and an early featured role on Shut Up & Dance’s „Lamborghini”, were bold steps forward, fiercely energetic mutations of dancehall, hip-hop, and jungle.

Resurfacing in 1995 on EMI with relatively conservative US3-produced releases like „Freedom Train” and „Money”, they also put together a second album, „Rinsin’ Lyrics” (1995). Scattered singles appeared during the early 2000s, and in 2008 the Soul Jazz label compiled „Ragga Twins Step Out”, which focused on the Shut Up & Dance era.

In 2008 the Twins lent their vocals to the Backdraft single, „Rock the Mic”. In 2010 they were featured on Mason and the Fraudster’s track „U Appear”. Flinty Badman & Deman Rocker appeared in the Plan B crime film „Ill Manors” in 2012. In 2014, they featured on „All is Fair in Love and Brostep” and „Ragga Bomb” from Skrillex’s debut album „Recess” and „Zipper” from MUST DIE!’s album „Death & Magic”. In 2008, Soul Jazz Records issued a compilation album of their early 1990s recordings (notably their collaborations with production team/label Shut Up and Dance) entitled „Ragga Twins Step Out”.
